L'Oreal Magic Retouch

I have been dying my hair L'Oreal Natural Darkest Brown for six years now and when you have almost blonde hair naturally you get some pretty ugly roots! I try to touch my colour every two months or as long as I can possibly leave it but my roots always drive me mad. I had been using black eyeshadow to try and cover up my roots and while it did the job fine, it wasn't all that long lasting so when I saw the L'Oreal Magic Retouch I couldn't wait to try it out! 
L'Oreal Magic Retouch
The L'Oreal Magic Retouch is available in five different colour options and I decided on Dark Brown but I probably could have done with the black version as my hair is almost black anyway but it still is a good colour match. I have been using this for the past few weeks or so and I have been quite impressed with the results but I do have a couple of issues with the product but nothing that is going to make me stop using it as I do love being able to conceal my mega roots without having to dye my hair every month. 

In each can it says it will give you up to 30 uses which isn't bad for £8.99, I got mine for £5.99 at Boots as it was on offer. It is L'Oreal's first instant root concealer spray which is going to perfectly match your roots and blend the colouring to leave you with a naturally concealed root area. It is to be applied to dry and styled hair, make sure to shake the can well before use and hold around 10cm away from the roots and spray in a light stream. I would highly recommend using this before you apply your makeup as no matter how I have used it, I have ended up with it all over my forehead but it can be removed very easily if you do happen to use after makeup if you forget! 

When I use this you would never know that I had almost 2cm of roots as it conceals them brilliantly and the colour blends into the rest of my hair colour! One thing I really love about this is that it doesn't transfer and it lasts until you wash your hair. I touch my hair a lot and I find that even when I rub at my roots and it doesn't transfer onto my skin. What I don't like about this is how it makes my roots feel, they feel rough compared to the rest of my hair when I spray a little too much, think if you sprayed too much hair spray in your hair.  If you have grey hairs which you don't want to be seen this would be a great product to use to conceal them without having to dye your hair regularly if you only have a few. I have found it to be so quick to use and doesn't take up any extra time in the mornings so I can have a few more minutes in bed! 

If you are looking for a product to help prolong your hair in-between being coloured I would give this a try. I am not a huge fan of how it makes my hair feel if I use too much but when I wash it out it doesn't effect my hairs softness or texture so it has no long lasting effects which I am happy about. The L'Oreal Magic Retouch retails for £8.99 - HERE.

  2. I've tried this as well and also left a review on my blog, but I was definitely not a fan .. when you have dark hair I think it might work better, but I'm a blondie so the contrast is just to big .. Such a bummer it would've been so nice haha.

  3. I have seen this about quite a bit and I guess for a one off special occasion it would work well but I don't think as you said you can use it much. I dye my hair a reddy colour so none of these shades would work for me x

  5. I've also tried this but yet to write a review - I have it in black and believe you me it's black! I did apply it before putting on my make-up but would love to have seen a picture of your misadventure :)

  6. I recently went lighter with my hair, but I know I would have loved this when my roots were a bit darker!

  9. That is the problem with these kind of sprays it can make your hair feel rough. Still at least it concealed your roots!

  10. I have jet black Afro and I am always scared of dying my hair. I tried brown but I chose dark brown as I didn't really want it to show. The price doesn't look too bad but shame about how it affects texture

  11. I may have to give this a try when I need a quick and easy solution for my roots. I can probably deal with the roughness for short periods of time.

  15. Ooh I had no idea that products like this existed but this is exactly what I need! I had a hair dye disaster at the hairdressers recently and ended up dying my entire head myself. It's not 100% my natural colour and I can see my roots starting to come through now so I need to get my hands on this!

  17. I've been wondering what this is like. Sounds like it does a great job of disguising roots, but it's a shame it doesn't make your hair feel great when it's on.

  18. This sounds great - I had a hair dye disaster when I went from dark dark brown to... blonde. At home. With 3 bleach sessions... in 24hrs. I essentially went orange and I'm lucky my hair didn't fall out!

  19. I think this would be quite useful for my grey hairs - I'd been put off as I thought the colour would transfer but as you say it doesn't I think I'll give it a go!

  20. I never knew a product like this existed! I just dyed my hair black yesterday so I may need this in a few weeks!

  21. This sounds like a very interesting product, I will probably be in need of it shortly!

  22. This sounds like a handy little product, I hope other brands branch out to this as I'm not that keen on L'Oreal.

  23. This is such a great idea! I don't have dyed hair but I know some of my friends, and mum, would love this!

  24. This sounds really good, I like the fact it dosn't come off until you wash your hair.

  25. The price is not bad on what you can get. I don't have much something in my hair but this product can save a lot of women's hair problems.

  26. I also have naturally blonde hair that I've been dying brown for around 6 years (apart from about 6 months of red hair recently). You'd think blonde roots with brown hair wouldn't look too bad but it really does once you get enough regrowth. I think I'm going to go a little darker brown as my hairdresser went a little too light for me after stripping my red out but then I'm definitely grabbing some of this to try x
